April 1, 2014
N-xxx

New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) announced today that the second issue of NYUCD’s online-only, open-access magazine, the Journal of the Academy of Distinguished Educators (JADE) is online now at: http://www.nyu.edu/dental/ade/jadeindex.html.

JADE is the publications component of the NYU Academy of Distinguished Educators, whose mission is to enhance overall teaching at the NYUCD and to stimulate excitement among teachers around their intellectual content. Central to the vision of the Academy is the idea that teaching and learning are fundamental to the core mission of the College and that faculty members should be valued for their contributions in this area. JADE invites experts in higher education to face off on the thorny issues confronting higher education, at the same time as it endeavors to foster interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaboration.

Appropriately, the new issue of JADE features a discussion of Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPE), a pedagogical approach to preparing health professions students to provide patient care in a collaborative, team environment.

The issue has as its theme "Interprofessional Education and Practice: A Concept Whose Time Has Come." It features a guest editorial by Dr. Stefanie Russell, associate professor of periodontology and implant dentistry and of epidemiology and health promotion; a centerpiece article by Dr. Kathleen Klink, immediate past director of the Division of Medicine and Dentistry at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and Dr. Renée Joskow, Senior Dental Advisor and Chief, Oral Health Branch (HRSA); and commentaries by Dr. Judith Haber, associate dean for graduate programs and The Ursula Springer Leadership Professor in Nursing at the NYU College of Nursing, and Dr. Marko Vujicic, managing vice president of the ADA’s Health Policy Resources Center.
